Being from Mumbai, it is easy to be exposed to stories about the stereotypical image about the maximum city being unstoppable and novels based on that idea abound.
But a story about the realities of Bangalore?
Never had heard about that one before except one Indian Institute of Management, (IIM) novel by Karan Bajaj, Keep Off the Grass! But in the case of Keep Off the Grass, the city was just flitting in the background.
Thus, it was a surprise to come across Boiled Beans On Toast: A Play by Girish Karnad where the city comes to the forefront almost as a character in its own right.
